At this moment, I am in love with pear recipes! This pear and goat cheese pizza has the perfect balance of savory and sweet. In addition to pear, this goat cheese pizza has caramelized red onions, ham, garlic and cheddar.
Pear and goat cheese pizza
Dough for flatbread pizza
For this recipe, I use 365 pizza dough in a can. It’s the Whole Foods version of Pillsbury pizza dough. The dough is light and almost pastry-like.
You can also make this flatbread recipe on regular store bought pizza dough.
Goat cheese options
I love Cypress Groves goat cheese for pizza. It comes in a block and is easy to crumble.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavors like honey goat cheese and truffle goat cheese. Buy goat cheese in a block, on a log, or crumbled. Gorgonzola also tastes great on a pear flatbread.
This pizza has become a crowd pleaser for game day at my house. It stands out in a sea of nachos, wings and buffalo cauliflower bites.
Instead of a standard cheese board, this pear and goat cheese pizza is a very unexpected holiday appetizer. Serve it at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, you name it.
Once pears are out of season, you can use apples, cherries and other seasonal fruits in this flatbread pizza recipe. Your “never turning down a slice of pizza” blogger bud, Jenna.
